Tigers 4, Indians 2, 10

CLEVELAND — Max Scherzer got a no-decision in his bid to improve to 14-0, and Victor Martinez hit a two-run double in the 10th inning as the Tigers extended their lead in the AL Central with a 4-2 win over the second-place Indians on Monday night.

Martinez doubled off Matt Albers as Detroit won three of four in the series and moved 3½ games ahead in the division.

Scherzer, attempting to become the first pitcher since Roger Clemens in 1986 to open 14-0, pitched seven solid innings but left with the score tied at 2. Scherzer did not get his customary run support; the Tigers average an AL-best 7.87 runs in his starts. The presumed AL starter in next week's All-Star Game will take his perfect record into Saturday's start against the Rangers.

Matt Tuiasosopo homered for the Tigers, now 9-3 against the Indians.

Albers got two outs in the 10th before walking Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder. Martinez followed with a drive over the head of centerfielder Michael Bourn. The ball caromed off the wall, far enough away for two of Detroit's slowest runners to score.
